    I am interested in buying one of those, but,
    what do you mean when you say "MSI GT680/780 16F1/16F2/1761 GX/GT660 with UEFI !"?

    I have a msi 16f2 (gt683r) but it doesnt have uefi. Is it something specific from the graphics card?

    Hi kaldra,

    Do you have the barebone version (16F2) or the msi branded one (683r) ? I'm not sure how I got this option activated in the first place, some MSI does accept the 7970m 015.022 out of the box, some others don't.
    I leave a 1-month warranty just in case the card is not functionnal in your laptop, you can just return it to me for a full refund.

    I have the 683r version. Msi branded. And i am using unlocked bios, the same as in the picture.

    I see in your signature that you have a 16f2 with the 7970m. If it is running well, it should run on mine too. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    It should but I have to admit those vbioses have been very picky - the 7970M didn't run in my other 16F2 for instance.
    Again, if you have any issue, I'll be happy to take the card back :) and it's such an upgrade over the 570M.

    It will be more than an upgrade since mine has a 560m.

    I have some questions and i dont know if i can ask you here, but here it goes

    1º Does the hmdi audio/video works well?
    2º Is it true that the fan wont speed up automaticaly when the gpu gets hotter?
    3º Can the windows still monitor the gpu temperature?
    4º Will a 150W psu be enough? I see you have a 240W one.

    Sorry to ask here, but you have the 16f2 and the 7970m working together and i have been searching some time and couldnt find absolute answers.

    Over the 560m, this will be a huge upgrade.

    1) HDMI audio/video works fine!
    2) The fan will still speed up as normal, there seem to be a problem only with Clevo 7970m gpu where the fan does not behave to the GPU temps.
    3) Yes of course!
    4) 150W will be fine if you don't overclock - if you plan on overclocking, go for 180W mini!

    Hope this helps, any question let me know.

    Cheers

    It's compatibility is better than i thought. Awesome.

    How do we close the deal?

    Also, could you point me that 180W mini psu? The stock one is huge.

    Drop me an email: paulphamphu@hotmail.com - I'll let you know my paypal address etc etc.

    Regarding the PSU, I meant minimum 180W, there's no tiny 180W PSU unfortunately - if you need a smaller/slimer one, you can possibly mod a 240W Dell/Alienware adapter!

    The last card is sold to Kaldra !

    I am interested in one of the cards. You said you are not sure it will work on a m17x r2? Is the card a dell one or a clevo eurocom?
